Introduction

This online training course will cover the fundamentals of electric power generation, transmission and distribution. Emphasis will be on the alternating current (AC) single phase and three phase networks and characteristics. As we are all aware electricity kills, therefore understanding of electrical hazards and electric shock risks are primary concerns. Effective and importance of earthing or grounding create awareness when we are dealing with electricity.

An efficient electric power supply is vital to ensure the smooth operation of protection devices namely fuses and circuit breakers, motors and transformers. Choosing the correct and accurate protection devices ensures safety and prevent arc flash hazards. Uninterruptible power systems are usually installed to ensure the safe and continuous and secure flow of electric power. All electrical installation are designed in accordance to their single line diagram to ensure balance load flow. Good maintenance regime will assure the safe operation of electric equipment in conjunction with the appropriate testing instruments.
